Welcome to Jurassic Park

Runescape dinosaurs have arrived in the game's newest update as part of Farming 120.

If you've never played Runescape before, you've missed out on a pretty interesting browser-based role-playing game. It's been around for a very long time now, but the developers have still been cranking out content while also maintaining a legacy version for the people who prefer the classic experience.

 

Now, Runescape dinosaurs are available in the game, along with a pretty sweet Double XP weekend and a whole bunch of new content.

All About the Runescape Dinosaurs

The Runescape dinosaurs were introduced in a recent game update which detailed several new elements coming to the game. The updates adds in 14 new reptilian species that will grow from super-cute baby dinosaurs into terrifying, monstrous reptiles. Also, you can harvest "beak snot" from these creatures and use it in potions because Runescape is a wild game.

Details of how Farming 120 works were explained in a separate news post. First, players will have to go to the Western area of the island and click on the Magic Tree to transport themselves to The Ranch Out of Time. Each of the 14 dinosaurs you can raise have their own perks, a portion of which were detailed in the news post:

 
  • Oculi Apoterrasaur
    • A 3% chance of receiving an extra piece of meat when skinning a Big Game Hunter creature. Raised to 5% at Tier 2.
  • Bagrada Rex
    • 5% chance per tier to conserve a bomb when thrown.
  • Malletops
    • Increases the duration of Barricade by 1.8 seconds per tier.
  • Varanusaur
    • 10% chance per tier to make 4 doses instead 3 doses when mixing Weapon Poison or Antipoison potions.
  • Corbicula Rex
    • Increases the Critical Hit chance of Meteor Strike by 20% per tier.

As your farming level increases, you';ll be able to build larger and larger pens to keep your dino friendos comfortable. Towards the bottom of the upgrades is the Breeding Pen, costing 100,000 each of Wood, Vines, and Stone along with 1,000 Beans. You'll also need Farming Level 42 and Construction Level 55 to build it.

The ability to raise dinosaurs in Runescape is something that's sure to make things a little more interesting. If you haven't yet hopped into this fantastic world, you can download the Runescape client for free right now. They have a double XP weekend going on, so it's never been a better time to get started!
